Fruit salad can serve multiple purposes. It can be a casual side dish, a kid-friendly healthy snack, or an elegant dessert. Get creative with tropical or exotic fruits like star fruit or lychees, or keep it simple with a fruit cocktail type salad. Remember, if you are using fruits that brown when exposed to air (like bananas) make sure to brush or spritz them with an acidic mixture like lemon juice to keep them fresh looking.
